PROTECTIVE GLOVES : GENERAL REQUIREMENTS EN 420 

This standard defines the general requirements for glove design and construction, innocuousness, cleaning instructions, electrostatic properties, sizing, dexterity, water vapor transmission and absorption along with marking and information.

This standard specifices physical and mechanical aggression caused by abrasion, blade cut, tearing and puncture. EN388:2016 updates the existing standard with this new test method for abrasion, blade cut & impact resistance. EN ISO 13997:1999 (TDM test) records cut results as a Newton value – the force of the blade on the glove material needed to cut through the material 20mm. The results are represented on a scale A-F.

EN 388 Standards explained – Revised Coup Cut Test

REVISION TO CUT TEST

The method for testing the cut resistance of gloves has been typically carried out using a circular blade which moves back and forth across the surface of the gloves. This test is commonly referred to as the Coup Test. The revisions to the Coup Test are:

• Circular blade test stops at 60 cycles

• New blade used for every cut

• If cutting factor is greater than 3 (i.e. difference in performance of the reference material against the test material) the straight blade test becomes the reference test.

• The Coup Test does not have to be referenced if referencing the Straight Blade Test. In this case it will be marked with an X.

This table shows the current method to determine the resistance to cutting.

STRAIGHT BLADE TEST (ISO 13997)

The Straight Blade test can be used in lieu of the Coup Test. It should also be used if the Coup Test reaches 60 cycles or if the cutting factor is greater than 3.

• The test is conducted on a TDM 100 machine

• Tests are conducted using a new blade every time, blunting is not a factor

• Increasing levels of force are applied, 2 newtons up to 30 newtons

• Letter score is applied A – F, F being the highest

• The letter reference is applied in lieu of or along with the cut number reference
